Updated with quotes for May 2021:

Classic:
I would renounce, therefore, the attempt to create heaven on earth, and focus instead on reducing the hell.
— A. Alan Borovoy, 1988.

 

Direct:
Mobbings multiply and life is grim in organizations run by true believers in human perfectibility, as compared to those run by admitted sinners accepting of human frailty and politics.
— The Envy of Excellence, 2003, p. 180.

Garden moment for May 2021:

In a formal part of the gardens of the Niagara School of Horticulture, the hornbeam allée is coming into leaf behind a symmetrical show of daffodils. I take delight in a scene like this, though I cannot imagine myself designing so stiff an arrangement of trees and flowers. Part of what makes horticulture fun is the variation in what humans find beautiful.
